I don't get too overly excited, but I love sniffing that brand new smell.

If I get a game that I have been expecting for so long and is my favourites, like LittleBigPlanet 2...
I get crazy excited, I do a dance here and there while I wait for the install and I don't even care if there's a big ass install...
I'm still so excited.
If I get a game I like, I still get excited, I don't purchase a lot of games, I never rent and if I buy a game, it's a game I usually want to keep. Not sell again.

I used to be that way when I was younger. I remember seeing Metal Gear Solid (PSX) on the shelf of a Target and I had NO idea that was getting released; since I had recently gotten back into gaming at that time was the reason I was clueless.

I was a huge, HUGE fan of the two NES Metal Gear games (yes, Snake's Revenge isn't as bad as you've read -- it's just an action-based game is all). So seeing a 3D rendered Metal Gear game about made my heart almost start ticking. Almost.

While I don't super excited anymore, I still love the smell of brand new games.

Thanks to ESYLD for the avatar/signature.

Only if its a game I've hyped myself up over. Next month I'm going to be giddy like a school-girl with all the RPGs coming out.

Yeah. This is definitely one of the best things about buying new games, especially if it's one you have pre-ordered or excited about playing. I remember when I got my Special Edition of Uncharted 3 back in November. Damn, Drake's journal really did smell authentic. Still smells great to this day.

Nothing beats New Game Smell, and yeah I do get excited about some games. For example I'm going to be as giddy as a school girl that's just found out One Direction are coming to their house when Mass Effect 3 arrives.
